WWII shooter Sniper Elite V2 free right now

Last week, Rebellion told gamers not to buy WWII shooter Sniper Elite V2, confusing more than a few FPS fans. Today, it’s all become clear – and you’d better be quick!

Last week, Rebellion posted:

We’d advise against buying Sniper Elite V2 on Steam in the next few days, but we WOULD advise scoping out potential snipers to play with … news soon!

Now though: Sniper Elite V2 is available completely free via Steam, but only for a 24 hour window. If you snap up the game between now and 10am PST June 5 (What’s that in my timezone?), you’ll be able to keep it forever, without spending a cent.

Rebellion Co-founder and Creative Director, Jason Kingsley explains:

V2’s one of Rebellion’s most successful ever games, but it’s been out for over two years now. We think the loyal Sniper Elite community will welcome some fresh blood on the multiplayer servers, while new players will get to experience the things that make the series unique, and sharpen their skills before the release of Sniper Elite 3.

Kingsley understands the importance in word of mouth and “that buzz about your game” – and says part of this deal is to get gamers to interact with Rebellion and its games “for years, not just launch week”.

Launch week is coming up soon, too: Sniper Elite 3 is headed to shelves on June 27.
